MIG-64 - 64 most theoretically important selected games from TWIC,
In the first instance, I have chosen games containing the most valuable novelties in topical variations.
“Level 2” – these are novelties in l;esser variations or novelties of arguable merit in topical variations
“Level 3” – non-standard, original opening ideas.
At the highest level, "an important novelty" often doesn't mean a single move, but the mere fact that a top GM chooses a forgotten or underrated variation. I have included the most interesting such games in MIG-64.
The opening analysis of games is done mainly using Mega Database 2012, TWIC and Correspondence Database.
All games in the file MIG-64 consist of express-commentary, including:
